The QES Suicide Surveillance system is designed for use by a multi-disciplinary group, allowing councils, Police, Mental Health services, Suicide Prevention groups and other local services the opportunity to share real time surveillance data and coordinate responses.
This system is innovative as it uses a report from the police force of a potential suicide, as the basis for reporting, as opposed to coroner decision of confirmed suicide. This allows for a time frame of days following the incident for information to be added and action to be taken, as opposed to months after.
